A study published in the Journal of Ageing and Health shows that people who immigrated to the United States are living more satisfactory in America than those who born there.
The study analysed that immigrants from white,Hispanic and other racial groups have higher levels of happiness and overall life satisfaction than those who born in United states.
“We discovered that people who are foreign-born and living in the united States have higher levels of life satisfaction. We examined life satisfaction because it is a useful global measure for understanding how people are doing on the whole with regard to how they feel about their life.It’s a good way of capturing their overall well-being,”explained Dawn Carr,the lead researcher of the study.
the researchers also examined the “Hispanic Paradox,” which refers to the older Hispanic immigrants in US tend to have better health outcomes than non-whites.
Furthermore,the team also studied how the levels of education were linked with overall life satisfaction.
